Alerts, Shut Downs & Detours


Cooling Tower Down
The cooling tower in the chiller plant that services Kennard-Washington Hall, McLemore Hall and Southern Hall is currently down. Our technicians are working as quickly as possible to diagnose the problem, but until the repairs are complete there will be no cooling in any of the affected buildings.   



Heating Water Shut Down

The heating water system that supplies the Liberal Arts Building, International Center, Harkins Hall and the Theatre and Dance Building will be shut down for one to three days for repairs beginning Monday, May 11. During this time the aforementioned facilities may feel slightly cooler than normal, so please dress accordingly. 

Theatre & Dance Parking Lot Closure

The north section of the Theatre and Dance parking lot will close on Monday, May 11, for the tie-in of utilities and parking lot modifications related to the construction of Asbury Hall. Completion of this work will depend on weather conditions and will likely take several weeks.

International Center Parking Lot

The International Center parking lot will close beginning Tuesday, May 12, for installation of utility lines for Asbury Hall. The lot will remain closed until further notice. ADA spaces are available in the Joseph Greene Hall parking lot. Digging will also take place in nearby grass areas. Please be aware of all construction fencing and detour signage. 




The City of Hattiesburg has begun installation of a new traffic signal and crosswalk at the corner of Fourth Street and Golden Eagle Avenue.  As a result of this installation, the sidewalks running along the north and west sides of the parking garage will be closed.  Traffic along Fourth Street and Golden Eagle Avenue may be impacted intermittently during the installation process.  Weather dependent, the project will take three to four weeks to complete.
